Gov. Cooper speaks at summit, House Speaker Moore tours library building

UNCG was the host location Monday of the Back to School Safety Summit. It provided an opportunity for North Carolina education and elected officials, as well as public safety and criminal justice professionals, to share ideas on the future of school safety. Chancellor Gilliam provided a welcome. Governor Roy Cooper was among the speakers in UNCG Auditorium. About 450 attended, including several legislators from around the state.


Yesterday, UNCG hosted a visit by NC House Speaker Tim Moore, who was accompanied by Rep. Jon Hardister and Rep. John Faircloth. They toured Jackson Library, which is in need of renovation. The last substantial renovation or expansion to the building occurred in 1973, when the tower was added.
